Oyez, Oyez

Be it known to all here present that madshutterbug hereby officially appoints starcat_jewel Food Porn Queen of November.

All for a gift of beef jerky from Woody's Smokehouse of Centerville, Texas. Oh. My. Gastronome.

In other news, made it home after a bit of a delay getting out of DFW. We boarded on time, and taxied out alllll the way to being in line for take off, then turned around and taxied alllll the way back to "take on some ballast", then taxied alllll the way (yes, as starcat_jewel commented, things in Texas really aren't close to each other geographically, not even runways and terminals at airports) back out to get into line for takeoff again.

The good news, I suppose, is that this turned a two-hour layover in Memphis into a one-hour layover. We got out of Memphis on time, and touched down in Hoggetowne about right on time.

And in still other news, while I sojourned off to the Big D, Ruthie went to a tack auction. This is of course referring to equippage needed for the newest member of KP Ranch, Sage the Horse. She describes a curious process for an auction. The opening bid is what the seller hopes to get for the item. Then, if no one bids the opening, the amount goes down until someone does bid; at that point things work as I'm familiar with auctions. She got a bridle/reins set (no bit) and a western saddle and blanket, in very good condition and all for under $250 US.

Sage is settling in comfortably. She is no longer concerned about smelly hogs; they're just there. Also, R has been working with her on a lunge line, and Sage's opinion is to do the drill with two repetitions at a walk, three at a trot, one at a walk, and then come up to R and say, "Alright, I've shown you I know how to do this. Now lets go do something interesting, OK?"

Ooh! That reminds me, Ben thinks I can get the best deal on foul weather gear by going to a feed store sort of thing...

Feed store or tack store? Feed store I think this is a good probablility; they'll likely have other types of supplies which a rancher/farmer might need, and foul weather gear is one of those. Tack store could have foul weather gear as well, but I'm not sure that the prices would be better than the feed store. Ruthie's a smart one; she'd done her shopping for those items at a couple tack stores, and new what her top end prices would be at the auction.

Google Is Your Friend
But of course, you already know that. Search terms, feed store + st augustine


Just a thought; I don't know the reputation of any of these places. There are a lot more "hits" from those search terms, these are just a few that looked pretty close to you geographically.
